The primary purpose of this study is to examine the effects of 1-week of overeating on important clinical metabolic health outcomes (e.g., glucose tolerance, blood lipid profile, and blood pressure) and factors regulating the structure and metabolic function of fat tissue. This study will determine how regular exercise during this overeating period impacts these responses.
Obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) causes hypercapnia (PaCO2>45) in subjects with obesity in the absence of lung disease, and is associated with respiratory failure, pulmonary hypertension, ICU admission, and death. Obesity is necessary, but not sufficient to cause OHS. Neuro-hormonal dysfunction is believed to impair respiratory CO2 sensitivity. In particular, leptin may play a role in OHS pathogenesis. In OHS, leptin levels are greatly elevated and correlate positively wi...
We will assess the endocrine and immune effects of leptin replacement in leptin-deficient children, from a consanguineous Turkish family. We hypothesize that leptin replacement will have significant effects on immune and endocrine function.
This study has been designed to 1) provide access to metreleptin to the only two individuals in the US known to have congenital leptin deficiency (CLD) and 2) explore a variety of unanswered questions about leptin physiology in general and metreleptin therapy in CLD specifically. The primary study endpoints include the following measures: body composition, measures of hepatic steatosis, measures of insulin sensitivity, and measures of sleep architecture. Secondary study...
Our previous studies have demonstrated that there is substantial metabolic opposition to the maintenance of an altered body weight. Leptin is a protein secreted by fat cells and the circulating concentrations of leptin are directly proportional to fat mass. Leptin-deficiency is associated with severe obesity in rodents and in humans and the obesity is relieved by leptin administration. These studies examine the hypothesis that some of this metabolic opposition cto the maintena...
This study will test the hypothesis that leptin contributes to the regulation of the dynamics of human endocrine function.
The purpose of this trial was to determine if injections of leptin would improve vascular function in normal-weight, healthy volunteers.
This is a pilot and feasibility study to examine a novel intervention using leptin in weight-reduced individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery but still remain obese. Leptin, a peptide hormone secreted from adipose tissue, is a regulator of food intake and energy expenditure. Administration of leptin resulted in profound weight reduction in the few reported cases of obese individuals with genetic leptin deficiency. However, most obese people have increased leptin levels....
The purpose of this study is to identify how certain parts of the brain that help control body weight respond to an infusion of hormones called leptin and amylin.
This novel compound is a new experimental treatment that may help people to stop compulsive overeating. Compulsive overeating or binge eating is one of the main reasons why people are overweight or obese. Recent research has shown that some kinds of overeating may be linked to a brain chemical called dopamine. There is some evidence that blocking the action of this chemical in animals can reduce food intake, particularly of foods that are high in fat and sugar. The purpose o...
The purpose of this study will be to determine the correct dose of leptin, a natural hormone secreted by the fat cells, to give to people when they are fasting and also to determine whether giving leptin to a person when he or she is fasting will reverse the changes in hormone levels that occur with fasting.
The brain plays an integral role in how and what people eat. However, the brain's contribution to overeating is not well understood during sensitive developmental periods such as adolescence, when excessive weight gain and obesity prevalence are a significant concern.The proposed study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine how the brain's response to excess energy is related to overeating in adolescents with and without obesity.
The purpose of this study will be to determine whether giving leptin (r-metHuLeptin) to a person when he or she is fasting will reverse changes in metabolism, and hormone levels, and immune function associated with fasting, which decreases leptin levels.
After vaginal delivery, all of the participants will evaluate by using Edinburg depression scale and venous blood sample will obtain. Postpartum depression will consider the result of scale 13 and above according to Turkhish translate. Then leptin, adiponectin and serotonin level will compare between depressed and nondepressed women.
Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (or NASH) is known to be caused by deposition of fat in the liver and development of scarring. This condition occurs more frequently in overweight and obese persons. It is often associated with resistance to the actions of insulin hormone. Fat cells secrete a hormone called leptin. Recently, we have learned that obese or overweight persons make too much leptin, which may contribute to insulin resistance. Paradoxically, patients who do not have any f...
Leptin is a hormone that acts in the body as a chemical messenger. It is produced in fat cells and is believed to regulate body weight in humans. Leptin decreases appetite and influences the energy balance of the body. This study will attempt to measure levels of leptin production in the fat pad of the body by using a process called microperfusion. Microperfusion works by inserting 2 to 3 probes (thin tubes) into the fat pad around the belly button. These probes can measu...
Leptin is a hormone that plays a central role in food intake and energy balance. It is secreted by fat cells, released into the circulation and transported into the central nervous system (brain), where it regulates energy balance and food intake. The overall effects of leptin appear to reduce food intake when the body is calorically satisfied, and to alter metabolic rate A decrease in the amount of body fat, which occurs after fasting, reduces the level of leptin, thereby stim...
The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in young population continues to rise. Obesity is a chronic inflammatory disorder in which leptin, adiponectin and C reactive protein (CRP) play an important role. This study aimed to determine whether these adipokines are significant markers in defining MetS in pediatric population and to assess the effect of hypocaloric diet and physical activity on serum concentrations of adiponectine, leptin, and high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP).
The experience of pain is more than the conscious perception of nociceptive signals. Emotional and motivational aspects accompany pain, leading to its aversiveness and motivation for avoidance. In chronic pain, a negative hedonic shift has been proposed that is characterized by disproportionally increased emotional-motivational compared to sensory-discriminative pain responses. Such a negative hedonic shift is, for example, mirrored in very high comorbidity rates of chronic pai...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with HIV lipodystrophy (fat wasting) benefit from taking the combination of two drugs, one insulin sensitizer (either metformin or pioglitazone, both diabetes drugs) and leptin (a natural hormone produced by your fat cells). Our hope is that they will improve sugar and fat metabolism and positively affect the body fat changes you have noticed while taking HAART.
Leptin, a circulating hormone expressed abundantly in adipose tissue, has been reported to be a satiety factor. In addition, it has been shown to increase during pregnancy in maternal blood, parallel to increase in body fat mass, to correlate with fetal body weight gain and to fall down to basal levels after delivery. Little is known about leptin levels in pregnant women with preexisting or gestational diabetes and their relationship with fetal and postnatal growth and perinat...
This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and effect on body weight of leptin, injected subcutaneously, in combination with pramlintide, injected subcutaneously.
The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between brain activity and the perception of subjective hedonic sensations in response to a meal using functional MRI.
This is a study investigating the hormones and substances important to the stress response. The hormone that is most directly responsible for stress response is called corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). CRH is produced in the hypothalamus of the brain and causes the pituitary gland to produce another hormone called ACTH. The hormone ACTH then acts on the adrenal glands causing them to produce the hormone cortisol. Unfortunately, CRH levels are unable to be measured in si...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether administration of an investigational medication called leptin (r-metHuLeptin) in replacement doses can improve bone health, reproductive function, hormone levels, immune function, and overall sense of well-being in women with hypothalamic (exercise-induced) amenorrhea (HA) who are being treated with oral contraceptive pills (OCPs), compared to placebo. Women with hypothalamic amenorrhea have low leptin levels. This study is ba...
